5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish guitar at its finest January 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For me, it is interesting to compare this recording to a similar recording by David Russell ("Reflections of Spain") that readers might also know. These recordings share only a few pieces by Albeniz between them (given that Jason Vieaux, unlike Russell, is playing all Albeniz), but they both speak to the Spanish sensibility in a similar vein.

Starting from a purely objective and clinical viewpoint, Mr. Russell is a technically superior guitarist. He plays with almost no detectable string or finger noise and with a deceptive ease that I have heard in no other player. He also plays a comparatively resonant guitar, giving his sound a remarkable and uniform depth of tone and the illusion of a guitar that is pitched lower than normal; and, he makes maximum use of this sound in all his playing. Also, his recording seems more acoustically "natural." Mr. Vieaux's recording seems to have either added reverb or is made in a much more resonant recording space.

For all of Russell's flawlessness, Vieaux simply stands apart in his brilliant rhythmic and sonic interpretation of the music. Even if his technique lacks the polish of Russell's fluid playing (with string noise not more than most first-rate guitarists), as another reviewer has noted, Vieaux simply "transcends mere technical proficiency" with an utterly focused energy and sensitivity that is uncanny to hear.

The most illustrative work to compare them is Sevilla, which each guitarist has arranged himself from the piano original. Russell plays it ever so cleanly and with what I might call an easy and friendly delivery. Again, his tone is perfectly even, extremely lyrical, and consistent throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative Composer & Outstanding Guitarist April 3, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With the exception of Bach, Isaac Albeniz probably deserves the most gratitude by classical guitarists for his contributions to the classical guitar repertoire. Even though Albeniz wrote for the piano, many of his compositions sound more appropriate for guitar; furthermore, his works are thematically brilliant and well developed. As with many composers, Albeniz was able to draw upon his country's folk music, including flamenco, for musical ideas and inspiration.
Jason Vieaux, the performer of this collection of fine works, is one of the best classical guitarists today. He gives each piece a beautiful interpretation and tonal quality. I think only a few of the best guitarists exceed Vieaux's performance of certain pieces in this collection: John Williams' stupendous 1969 recording of "Asturias" and "Sevilla" from The Seville Concert; Parkening's exquisite "Rumores de la Caleta;" and Segovia's "Torre Bermeja." But even with the aforementioned pieces, Vieaux gives his own distinct and brilliant touch; moreover, his "Granada," "Tango," and "Cuba" are the best I've ever heard. The only piece I wish Vieaux had included on this CD is "Zambra Granadina." Overall, including the very good recording quality, this is a wonderful CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jason Vieaux 's Albeniz CD is masterful May 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having just raved about David Russell's CD "Legends of Spain," what to say about Jason Vieaux's all-Albeniz CD, Sevilla?

Both CDs are wonderful examples of Spanish classical guitar playing at its best. That Russell has the superior technique seems clear: His technique has to be heard to be believed. But technique is more than physical prowess. It is the ability to utilize technique in the service of bringing out what you want to in the music. It is the combination of touch, variation of tone and color, dynamic shading, and the like - the ability to totally control, sublimate, if you will, one's technique in service to the music.

Jason Vieaux's playing is masterful, his playing intensely poetic and very musical. Each piece seems superbly crafted and realized, the playing drawing you into it seductively. I've rarely heard a guitarist utilize the sounds and capabilities of the instrument as much as Jason Vieaux. Fine as both David Russell and Jason Vieaux are in Albeniz, if I had to choose, I'd take Jason Vieaux.

For other ways of playing Albeniz, try John Williams in his all- Albeniz CD (Sony), Manuel Barrueco in his CD of Albeniz and Turina (EMI), and Julian Bream in his CD of Spanish Music for the Guitar (the Suite Espagnola, Op. 47, BMG/RCA).

The sound in Jason Vieaux's CD is somewhat reverberant and resonant, but not compromising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary August 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Jason Vieaux is a brilliant young guitarist who transcends mere technical proficiency and plays with a passion and flair that belie his age. Albeniz' music, originally written for piano, assumes a haunting lyricism when performed on guitar. True to its flamenco inspired roots, it also displays the intricate rhythms and flourishes one would expect. Vieaux's sensitivity and talent are particularly well suited to its challenges.
This is a must-have recording for all fans of Spanish guitar music.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant August 27, 2008
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD
Jason Vieaux' playing is technically brilliant, but also very emotional and expressive. I think he did all the transcriptions himself, so it's an academic masterpiece, too. I think it's the best classical guitar album I've ever heard.
